Best timetable for UPSC preparation

Timetable plays a major role when it comes to achieving your objectives or even in day to day life. If you don’t have a timetable then you end up doing waste of time. Have you ever thought that we all have 24 hours available to us but still only a very small percentage of people are able to achieve great heights by working smart.

If you are really serious about your preparation, then you should be well-equipped with a proper strategy and timetable to hit the exam. The moment you are ready with your schedule, consider half of your battle as won.

There is a strong tendency of not getting stuck to the same timetable for the entire course of preparation but, if you really want to achieve it in your very first attempt, then you should have that determination and discipline to follow your schedule till the end to complete your syllabus.

Sample Study Timetable for IAS Aspirants:

What to do?

8:30 – 9:30 a.m.
Revision Time
Revise the stuff that you studied the previous day. If it is your first day, then start doing with new topic.
9:30 – 11:00 a.m.
Study Time
Try to take up the toughest topics so that you can cover them first since your mind is fresh and can absorb a lot.
11:00 – 11:30 a.m.
Take a Break
Its really necessary.
11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
Study Time
Now, if the previous subject is losing interest, then try changing subject.
1:30 – 2:30 p.m.
Make sure its light lunch. It is better to avoid a daytime siesta.
2:30 – 4:00 p.m.
Test your Knowledge
The lowest efficiency time of our mind. Try doing mock tests or writing at this time.
4:00 – 5:30 p.m.
Study Time
Since the mind is already tired enough, try something lighter at this time. A subject that you like or something that picks up your interests you.
5:30 – 7:00 p.m.
Break Time
Now don’t get indulged in your phone. Meet positive people. Play or move around. Hit the gym if you are in the habit.
7:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Study Time
Take up the moderate stuff at this time as you would already be tired from the whole day’s work.
8:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Revise and then Consolidate
Keep this habit intact till the end.
9:00 – 9:30 p.m.
Supper Time
Always avoid heavy meals to get a good sleep.
9:30 – 10:00 p.m.
News/Discussion Time
Now you should avoid watching useless debates. Watch quality news discussions on UPSC-relevant issues.
10:00 – 10:30 p.m.
The Soothing Time (Avoid TV)
Relax and de-stress your mind. Listen to music, talk to your family and friends, but don’t watch TV
10:30 p.m.
Get a good sleep and do not get stuck to any screen time before bed (mobile etc.)
Don’t forget to add a few hours of study on the weekends since you’d be having more time on those days. Once in a while you could also spend the time doing something that doesn’t take up much time like watching a movie or going for dinner with friends or family.
Of course the time table will be quite different for those who are engaged in a job, with much more commitments and much less time for studies. You might in that case need to give it your all on the weekends and keep a 3 to 5 hour study schedule on the weekdays.
